Datex FootPrint Warehouse Management Software (WMS) work flow

Datex FootPrint WMS

Was developed with Microsoft tools that your IT staff can learn in order to make system configurations, adapting processes to meet changing business needs. Our warehouse management system (WMS) uses Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation, enabling changes in your business processes without costly professional fees or hard code programming changes.

Within Datex FootPrint WMS is a powerful workflow engine that powers business processes throughout the warehouse operation. The “workflow” is a set of activities which, when joined together form a process. Our warehouse management system was developed using workflows rather than static hard coding to make business processes easier and faster to change. The Datex team can train your IT staff to use the Workflow Designer within Datex FootPrint WMS. This will allow your staff to make changes to your business processes immediately. Your company will be able to react swiftly and adapt to changing business conditions and customers’ requests and needs.

By using the Workflow Designer

Your staff will be able to save time and reduce your ongoing IT cost, reducing professional service hours and costly changes to source code and putting your staff in command of your WMS and business processes. The changes made to workflows will carry forward to all future upgrades. That flexibility will truly give your business an edge in today’s tough competitive business climate.
